#!markdown Okay, so my buddy Dave (Thumber, not Tolnai), had this one dialed after pump- tracking a bunch. Entering a corner with your rear foot to the outside allows the rider to drop the outside foot as they progress through the turn. It lets you freewheel the crank into position, and smoothly apply pressure with that dropped outside foot. Of course, you can still keep both feet at 50/50 if you choose, but entering with the outside foot back sets you up perfectly for both moves. Since he told me that, I try to do this every ride. I wish it was ingrained into my riding though, because I usually have to think about it as I'm doing it.
